128 East 93rd Street is a charming and stunning originally three-story wooden house. The house was built in 1866 and is one of the five surviving wooden houses in the Upper East side worth today at least 10.5 million dollars. It was in fact in 1866 the New York City fire code banned all wooden construction below 82nd Street, and it was in 1882 the law expanded to 155th Street.
The first person to live in this house was Henry W. Shaw, the maker of artificial limbs. Additionally, in the 2000s television producer C.C. Dyer along with her daughters lived in this beautiful 25-foot wide house that includes a treehouse and a 48-foot deep backyard. The house today has four stories, four bedrooms, an elevator, a butlers pantry, a furnished basement, and a wine cellar. Will you be the next resident of this delightful house?
